Make a Difference

We've broken ground on a new building to house the Community Outreach Center, but there's still a long way to go before essential services can resume.


11 Remsen Avenue, Monsey, NY 10952

Planned dedication date:

July 2017


For the last 20 years, Community Outreach Center (COC) has been a key provider of social and housing services, public health and educational programs and workforce development for the greater Rockland County area. We function as a liaison to public agencies, offering guidance and support to our constituents. By assuring access to excellent, cost-effective, comprehensive services, we promote better health and safety for the individuals and families in our care.

Community Outreach Center case managers serve as navigators and advocates for anyone who is in need of financial and social services.


Schools throughout Rockland County benefit from COC program evaluations, assuring they meet all government standards. We also maintain professional teams that provide school staff with educator workshops to advance their skills.

Your generous donation will empower us to:

Furnish students in grades 1-6 with school bags and supplies, mentorship, examination prep and remedial assistance

Provide teens ages 14-17 wth a balanced mix of academic support recreational activities and annual field trips

Host weekly lectures and continuing education programs for senor citizens and adult students.

Social Services

The COC is more than a set of utilitarian benefits: we are also a community hub and a meeting place with heart. While offering impartial counsel and advice that ensures residents in need get the help they deserve, we also provide residents with a place to chat, make friends, improve themselves and share a laugh (or two).

Your beneficent gifts will enable us to:

Continue advising residents on how to engage with programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Food Stamps, homecare and property-tax relief.

Provide more space and weekly programs for seniors, including a larger gym for enrollment and operation.
